Diabetes management and care at home
Diabetes is a common condition characterised by high levels of glucose in the blood. There are two main types – Type 1 diabetes where the body fails to produce any insulin, and Type 2 diabetes where the body produces insulin but fails to manage it effectively. It is estimated that diabetes affects around 4 million people in the UK, and most people diagnosed with the condition are able to manage with minimal external care requirements. For the older population however, there might be a need for additional support to manage the condition effectively.
Our carefully selected, trained, and experienced specialist nurses and cares not only have the skills and experience required to meet our clients’ clinical and personal needs but we endeavour to compliment their characters and interests with their clients.
Working in close collaboration with clients’ GPs, consultants and therapists, we ensure the transition from hospital to home is safe, secure and successful.When illness onsets, being cared for at home can make such a positive difference to wellbeing and quality of life, whatever the prognosis. Familiarity of surroundings mean that our clients can retain their sense of identity whilst receiving the clinical treatment and care that they need.
There is the opportunity to enquire online but equally, our Director of Homecare Services, Michele Jogee, is always more than happy to discuss your requirements, and offer advice, in a confidential telephone call.
